Here is a nice highlight before the weekend. Aaron Barnett filmed Mates Tucek and Martin Drazil from the Czech Republic and also added a few interview parts between the combos. We would love to see more videos like that! Thanks Aaron!
Looking for a new frame? Matthias introduces his new signature Haro frame in this promo video. We think this is one of the best presentations of a flatland frame. Good job! We want one now ... below are some more details from the video description. Click here for more photos of the frame.

One of our favorit tricks! Sakis Doumas and what he calls The Easy Rider. The photo was taken a few days ago in Athens, Greece by Rodposse Photography. Check out Sakis' Facebook page for more photos and videos of him ...
Both Terry and Chad have a bunch of fun clips in this one! They say: "Initial idea from Stephigherfoundation to raise money for a local skatepark, school, food bank, and keeping people active. Then with Terry Adams and Chad DeGroot they decided to visit the local park X court, ride at some local spots, hit up Gordys bike shop, and help with the event with a ton of focus on flatland. Donations were great, everyone rode awesome, and a lot of support stepped up. To top it off an anonymous donation was given which won the silent auction for the TA signature frame. Enjoy this edit, TA killed it, Chad D pushed it, and everyone who attended or watches this DecoBMX wants to thank you. Notice the clicking on TA and Chad D's rear wheels as its the #ProfileZcoaster."
The schedule of the World Circuit has changed a bit. Instead of Cologne the second round will be the Barcelona Extreme contest. The date for the annual contest in Cologne is not confirmed yet but we heard rumors there may be no flatland this year. It's not confirmed and we hope to see a great contest in Cologne again this year. The Voodoo Jam date was confirmed in the meantime (August 25) and the Flatark contest in Japan will be final round on October 24 and 25.
